Writing Tip
Who's ready for another Grammar Rodeo? Today's Grammar Rodeo is sorta a Part 2 of last weeks. A big thanks to Cia for providing these for the blog. They are a great learning tool and include some great tips and tricks to help authors remember what is best to use. Hopefully you'll find Grammar Rodeo #6 as informative as I did!

Hope everyone has had a great week so far and is looking forward to the weekend. What better way to start it off than with brand new prompts! If you've been feeling stuck, or maybe just want to do something a little different, maybe one of these prompts will jumpstart a new idea. A couple of things to remember: Prompt responses under 1,000 words must be p...

Tech Tuesday: Tagging Tutorial

Posted by , 30 June 2015 · 155 views
tech tuesday, tags
This week I wanted to talk about the power of the Tag in the forum software. It has been a feature in the software for a long time now. Although we use them slightly differently in our Stories Archive, they function the same with our search system. What is a tag?
It is a descriptive word that you can attach to a topic, blog, gallery image, ebook, st...

Celebrating Marriage

Story Collection, Marriage
For something different, here's a blog about a topic that's been in the news recently: Marriage . This is not about politics, however; it's about how our authors have dealt with the topic. Surprisingly, at least to me when I first had this idea for a blog entry, there are no tags for marriage or weddings, so I'd like to thank everyone who helped me...

Tech Tuesday: Forum Usage And Layout Questions

Tech Tuesday, Updates
Wow, two weeks in a row. I'm still crazy busy along with the rest of our support team, but as I started to lay the ground work last week on a problem we've noticed. In case you missed last week's blog, the staff and members here at GA have noticed a larger than usual drop off in forum activity. It is completely normal for us to have this drop off during t...

Tech Tuesday: Update On Software, Forums And Personal

Posted by , 16 June 2015 · 390 views
Tech Tuesday
Hi everyone. Cia asked me to write a quick update on what's going on with the software. The answer to that is kind of complicated and it ties both personal and business stuff together. So I figured I'd just lay it out there for you. :) As some of you may recall, my father passed away suddenly in February. Since that time I have been pretty busy getti...

Your Forum Moderation Team

Site Tip, FMT
Hey, everyone, I don’t usually post blogs, but with the recent onsite drama we felt there is a need to address how the moderation system works here at GA, including what checks and balances are in place to try to avoid any abuse of the system. 
I’d like to introduce the Forum Moderation Team first. This team is a group of volunteers who help out with...

Irritating Busybodies And Former Members

Site News
It is not often that I have to do this and given the hellish time I've had to deal with in the last four weeks with the death of my father, I quite plainly resent having to write this blog at all. A former member of this site, Irritable1, had a disagreement over some of the content we've allowed on the site. It apparently offends her sensibility and she t...

Tech Tuesday - Reading Stories in Stories Archive survey

tech tuesday, survey and 1 more...
This week's blog is a quick poll. We are currently planning on adding new controls to the Stories pages, like the font size change you can use now.

The first is what I'll call book format. This will indent the first line of a paragraph and reduce the spacing between paragraphs. You'd be able to use either.
The second would be I guess contrast mode. you'd...
